Social Concern

To serve without expectations is the greatest good that we can do to the society. To make a difference in someone's life is the most challenging task at the same time fulfilling and inspiring.

The purpose of the social concern team is to inculcate the spirit of service and compassion among our students. The team helps the students to reach to the marginalized and also spread awareness about the social evils that is predominantly found in the younger generation today. Students are empowered to distinguish between the right and the wrong and respect their individuality by caring for themselves and the others.
